posted on by Bamboo Dong
In commemoration of next year's Japanese releases of Thor: Dark World and Captain America: Winter Soldier, two-person manga team Yudetamago (Kinnikuman, Ultimate Muscle)—Yoshinori Nakai (left) and Takashi Shimada (right)—drew an illustration of the movies' lead superheroes.
The full image will be featured in the January 4 issue of Weekly Shonen Jump. Starting December 14, 500 posters will also be given out to fans who preorder tickets for both films, for six selected theaters.
Nakai said that he's been a fan of Marvel characters for a long time, but felt an incredible amount of pressure for this project. "In order to not fail at making it 'Yudetamago-like,' I challenged myself to draw new superheroes," he said.
Thor: Dark World will be released in Japan on February 1, 2014, while Captain America: Winter Soldier will be released April 14, 2014.
